There is a reason they call it “The Emerald Isle”. The green never ends. In fact some of the photos I will be posting in the next few days have been desaturated a bit because people will think the color is fake. I suppose when you get rain constantly that’s what happens. This was taken on a hike through the area know as Howth Head. A twenty minute trip from Dublin on the DART ( local train). The area is beautiful with cliffs and field of heather. Howth Head is the location where Leopold Bloom proposes to Molly in James Joyce‘s Ulysses. Of course there is a Castle there. As a matter of fact there are Castles everywhere in Ireland.
